and environment coalition, i rise today to recognize the one-year anniversary of superstorm sandy and remember those who tragically lost their lives, as well as those continuing to rebuild from that destruction. in the years since superstorm sandy ravaged the east coast, communities across the nation have suffered through new extreme droughts, storms, wildfires, and flooding. my home state of hawaii is incredibly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. as you can imagine a sea level rise is a real threat and concern for us. earlier this year honolulu joined more than 70 other u.s. communities asking for the president to cut greenhouse gas emissions that are driving climate change and increasing hawaii's risk of extreme weather events and sea level rise. when i was in the hawaii legislature, i'm proud to say we passed a bill, and we were one of the first states to address the greenhouse gas emissions. as we reflect on this somber anniversary, i remain committed to ensure people of hawaii have the resources to prepare, respond, and recover from devastation. we must all remember it is climat
